Adam Lambert Stuns Kennedy Center Honors With A Cover Of Cher’s “Believe”

Adam Lambert delivered an awe-inspiring cover of Cher’s timeless “Believe” for Kennedy Center Honors. The 36-year-old was selected to pay tribute to the living legend during the gala, which took place earlier in the month but was broadcast on CBS last night (December 26). For his rendition, he transformed the anthem into an orchestral ballad. The final result is glorious to behold. His voice grew in power and eventually peaked with a note that had the Dancing Queen diva mouthing “wow” in the audience. After the performance aired, she took to Twitter to share her praise. “Tried 2 write Feelings About Adam Lambert Singing Believe In Words,but Cant seem 2.When Your senses are Overwhelmed All Can you feel with your ❤️,” she gushed.

She shared an equally sweet message about Cyndi Lauper, who performed “If I Could Turn Back Time.” “I Was Shocked AND Over The MOON When Cindi (Lauper) came out Rocking the house. Shocked Because SHE TOLD ME SHE WAS IN LA.” That’s not all though. Little Big Town put together a medley of some of her biggest hits, and Mama Mia co-star Amanda Seyfried reflected on the icon’s impact. Others who were recognized at the event included Reba McEntire, Philip Glass, Wayne Shorters and the creators of Hamilton. Kelly Clarkson delivered another of the night’s must-see performances. The Meaning Of Life hitmaker did justice to a cover of “Fancy.” It got her a double thumbs up from McEntire and a standing ovation.
